Acquiring its name from the fruit that Tambun, Ipoh, is famous for, THE POMELO lies within The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. One of the important components of this concept is spa cuisine – light, healthy and nutritious dishes. The POMELO innovatively incorporates the pomelo fruitinto refreshing spa cuisine for an awakening of the senses. THE POMELO’s spa cuisine menu explodes with flavours of organic fruits, vegetables, fresh seafood and premium poultry. No artificial seasoning or flavorings will be used in the cooking or preparation of food but lots of local fresh spices and ingredients are used instead.

It's the only restaurant in this hot spring retreat!! Fantastic starters with tiny portions and we both ended having 4 starters.... But really delicate and delicious!! The pan fried lobster main dish was also very good!! Worth to try!!

This was a truly relaxing experience! The villa is just amazing, with your own hot spring spa off your bedroom on one side and your own swimming pool off the other side. The spa treatments are tailored to needs and you feel like you have a new body. As for the meals, the Pomelo restaurant produces some for the finest... More

The setting is incredibly beautiful. The rooms are amazing. We visited them last year, but never stayed there. We ate in the Cellar, which is in a beautiful natural cave. The only disappointment was the food. The beef arrived cold. The dessert was pretty awful and our Chinese friends found each course ridiculously small.

Having a meal at the Pomelo is a way of entering and viewing the Banjaran resort without having to stay there (the resort is otherwise off limits to casual visitors). The restaurant is not air-conditioned, so it can get a little warm for lunch. The menu has a rather limited selection (see attached picture). The food is very good, though... More
